Fishing mechanics are practically a meme at this point. No matter how edgy, scary, or gritty the game, there’s a good chance it houses some kind of hook-and-bait resource system. And if that system is good enough, you want to play it more than the actual game.
If you’re one of these people, check out Creatures of the Deep. This no-frills idle game is the perfect game to enjoy the art of fishing without any gimmicks or scary undertones. (Looking at you, Dredge.) It’s also fairly easy to learn once you get the hang of it. This is everything you need to guide you in Creatures of the Deep.

Overall, the point of the game is to catch valuable fish that you sell. The more you catch and sell, the more you’ll level up and open resources that allow you to catch rare fish. The first thing you should learn about is the fishing mechanic.
How To Use The Fishing Mechanic In Creatures Of The Deep
If you’ve mastered the fishing mechanic in Animal Crossing, this will be effortless. Also, it’s absolutely easier than the one in Stardew Valley. We don’t talk about Stardew Valley fishing. The fish only move in the line they are facing, so make sure to put the lure right in front of their face. This is the only way they’ll nibble on it.
Basically, what you want to do is pay attention to the ripples around your lure when the fish nudge it. If there are several ripples, tap to reel it in. If not, wait one or two more times for it to nibble again and increase the ripples. The more agitation on the lure you see, the better chance you have of reeling it in.
How To Unlock The Shop In Creatures Of The Deep
In addition to collecting, you’ll be building structures in the main area. The first one is going to be a shop where you can buy things like bait, better rods, and special things for your boat. All you need for the base things is 4 pieces of wood, which are the planks you see floating in the water. Don’t worry about this too much at the beginning, as you can’t unlock anything in it except an extra rod until you get to level two.
How To Level Up In Creatures Of The Deep
To level up quickly, you need to do the tasks offered by Cap’n Slappy. He will request certain items in exchange for money and experience points. By doing this, you will also learn what kind of fish live in the different areas of the map. When you get enough money, you will be able to unlock other maps as well.
